Proud Grill Smart ignition Lighter

June 4, 2020

The Smartignition technology lighter uses an electric arc to ignite BBQ grills and campfires. It is butane free, flameless and has no smell. The lighter is rechargeable and comes with USB cord for that reason. It contains a built-in lithium ion battery that can be used up to 300 times per charge. Smartignition Lighter has a long flexible neck that bends, twists and rotates 360⁰. The electric arc is windproof to ignite in most outdoor conditions. It is a great fit for outdoor barbecuing onboard. Don’t forget to be aware of your surroundings, ensure that there is no potential of gas fumes when barbecuing onboard and never leave your barbecue or outdoor grill unattended.
